Hello from the Bluegrass Kitchen.  I am soooooooo over the rounds of colds that have wreaked havoc on the Cooks for the last few weeks.  Dennis started it all with a hunting trip to Mississippi.  Ethan is the last victim and having to cancel a sleepover with his best buddy next door, he requested that I make something different for dinner to raise his spirits.  He request spaghetti and meatballs?  Ethan does not like red sauce, he’s an alfredo kind of kid.  I just can't picture meatballs and alfredo??  This is what I came up with him and he LOVED it.  Dennis and Olivia were hunting and coming in late so I just saved them a plate and kept it warm in the oven, so everyone here was happy.  Click here for the full menu and recipe.
